Sieve is back again with another incredible EP of dark moods and thoughts. 'Vacuum-Assisted' focuses a bit more on the overall texture of each track compared to the beat-heavy electronics of his previous Kikapu release, 'wave/particle.' But don't be fooled, there are still plenty of forceful, brooding rhythms scattered throughout this release, all with a foreboding, inexhaustible feeling to them. Yet this release cuts even deeper into your psyche as you listen, pushing you to the edge. ( 2 reviews )
The third(!)EP from Sieve is now available just in time for the dark, cold nights of the autumn and winter seasons. Seven more tracks of brutal dub-step and industrial mayhem, this one pounces on you and doesn't let go. ( 1 reviews )
Sieve's debut Kikapu release is full of grit, dirt under the fingernails; a style that slaps you in the face and wakes you up with a start. This excellent EP's source materials are samples that Sieve originally recorded in 1997, possibly from a Casio toy keyboard, that have been re-recorded and bastardized many times over the years and have finally come to fruition in these tracks. This one isn't for the squeamish.
